Steps and tap operator

Steps and tap operatorA young lady of eight years of age has restricted growth and cannot reach the kitchen tap to make herself a drink.

A set of steps was made that could be easily moved to and from the sink by the client herself. The treads were faced with cork tiles and the handrails made from two broom handles. Two PTFE pads under the uprights at the top end of the steps allow them to be easily moved away when lifted slightly. To operate the tap a long reach tap turner was made.

The client can now get her own drinks (and has given us a list of further tasks!)
